What did you do to earn Staffer of the Week?

I reported on a Georgetown Law Center student who was convicted for selling meth and I also wrote a story about the Pope’s resignation.

What is your guilty pleasure TV show?

It’s not a ‘guilty’ pleasure, it’s just a pleasure, but Parks and Recreation.

When you were a kid, what did you say you wanted to be when you grew up?

That’s an easy one. I wanted to be president. Next Asian Hillary Clinton, right here.

What is your favorite part about working for The Hoya?

Either having fun with the news staff or the relief after finishing an issue and realizing there weren’t that many mistakes!

If you were forced to only be able to eat at one station in Leo’s for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Interestingly enough, I can’t decide even though Leo’s really sucks, but I would have to say the stir fry station. But then again the dessert section during lunch is really good and I like the meat station. So even though I hate Leo’s…I guess I kind of like it too.
